These days, the GOP position is to acknowledge it but they doubt if it’s man made climate change. Trump and Cult45 on the other hand… morons gotta moron.

They don’t doubt the science, they “doubt” the science. It’s the tobacco playbook.

Include leaders of Brazil and Australia (still? I haven’t kept up) on the right column, alas.

Let’s stop playing the blame game and pointing figures and work together on getting a tax credit for owners of valuable, job-creating oceanfront properties to move their homes, pools, outbuildings and golf courses inland to the new shore line.

Well, sometimes Trump recognizes it—for particular properties of his.

To be fair, there are probably a few companies and organizations (and very few countries) that deny climate change: Chik-Fil-A, Hobby Lobby, TBN, CBN, The Blaze, North Korea, etc.

And with Trump riding the GOP elephant, is not the connotation that Trump is influencing the GOP’s direction? It’s more the other way around. Trump couldn’t care less which side of the issue he lands, as long as it’s the side that garners him applause among the red-state crowds. The GOP elephant is riding on the (stooped) shoulders of Trump.

the elephant should be taking a dump and have a large semi-flaccid mushroom shaped, err, member (no, not the dick riding on top of the poor beast)

also, hands far too big

other than THAT, another great comic!

I think you’re on the right track, but how about something along the lines of tax cuts for the wealthy, as long as they move to the coast? Then we can see how well ‘trickle down’ really works.

Thank you, ExxonMobil, for irreversibly brainwashing our feckless leader.

Sure, I get it that Trump is an outlier, representing a tiny minority of human beings. But choosing to represent “everyone else” with corporate logos, just feeds the frame that corporations are people. Those logos don’t represent any “who”, they represent “what”. Things are not people. Corporations are not capable of “believing” any more than they are of having a religious conviction.

Whats worse, all these logos are going to have their spokespeople give lip service to the reality of climate change, while doing nothing to significantly scale back their own carbon emissions at all. Because their competitors might take advantage of the situation.

Acknowledging the reality of global warming is a far cry from taking any sort of action.

I am sure republicans think global warming is man-made.

Gay men. But still man-made.

Yes, there needs to be a big-ass asterisk next to Exxon-Mobil since they spent so long funding climate denial, as you referenced.
